Just wanted to add these links from the State of Alaska, Department of Labor and Workforce Development. I used to work for that particular agency, and the information is very useful:

http://labor.alaska.gov/research/relocate/relocmap.htm

Needless to say, some areas of the State are better, climate-wise than others. The politics in the Southeast (Juneau) are more like San Fran North. Good luck!
